Rates are inching up again today.  We are in danger of a mid-day pricing adjustment as we speak (with the market off 15 basis points currently).

This daily mortgage interest rate report is designed to provide Borrowers & Real Estate Profesionals with factual data regarding where rates are at any given time and what trends are propelling current mortgage pricing on any given day.

The Mortgage Street Smarts of where mortgage interest rates are going (and why):

The following information is current as of Wednesday 2-13-2013 and will help you understand today's best mortgage rates. If you are a Buyer/Borrower who is still on the fence (or if you are a Real Estate Agent attempting to educate your "on the fence" Buyer), please review these trends and secure an historically low interest rate before it is too late.

The market closed Tuesday with a WORSENING to pricing (and will typically warrant a pricing adjustment by most Lenders). Tuesday's WORSENING netted a change of 6 basis points (bps).

(hint: upward activity is good, downward activity is bad)
